Special Order


This is the black and white paperback edition.

In 2015, Lucy Fuggle chose to leave behind her life in the UK, as well as lifelong shyness and the predictable career that was expected of her, to live the adventurous life she really wanted alone in the Swiss Alps. For three years, she enjoyed the company of the mountains, trees, and soaring eagles of the Berner Oberland.

In summer, she found physical and mental strength hiking every trail around her house, including the Via Alpina trail 400 km across Switzerland. The coldest time of the year saw her switch hiking for freezing lake swims, snowshoe hikes, and glacier treks.

This is her quietly inspiring and soothing story of the ups and downs of living in tune with nature and the transformation it can bring. Surrounded by some of the most striking scenery in Europe, Lucy shares her journey of finding a slower pace of living and exchanging insecurity for courage.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
